Is firm travel back up to pre covid levels?
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
What’s the etiquette for when you’re a sneezing and coughing germy mess but maybe not “sick” enough to warrant taking the day off (or maybe I should)? Does it look bad to ask to work from the hotel?

Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...

Friday motivation: just booked three summer trips on points and miles for me and my hubby, including business class flight to London. Bright side of waking up at 4:30am on Mondays 😊
I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.

Are sick days a thing anymore, or is it just working from home to not fall behind when you can't physically go to work? Asking from my bed.
Do the other big 4 offer environmental consulting/auditing services? Been thinking to transfer into "Climate Change and Sustainability Services" at EY, but not sure if they'll take me. I'm in tax now.
Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?

Will I need a negative covid test to board a flight back to NY (LGA) ? Has anyone have flew into NYC recently & could tell me their experience? Thank you, for I will be in the MO this upcoming weekend. When I call their state center, it appears most testing sites are closed on Sat/Sun.

Right before Labor Day, after 2 months of dating, my guy made us “official” and asked me to be his girlfriend. (He made a romantic event of it, arranging a picnic by the lake). Ever since then, everything’s been great. until tonight. His ex, who he says he broke up with a couple of weeks before we met, called and says she could be pregnant (took a home pregnancy test and is going to the doctor ASAP). I’m full of all sorts of questions and feelings I’m not sure I have a right to. Advice?

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Feeling burnt out, like I’m not doing great work, in need of a major life change, and that I’m just in survival mode until the Holiday break. Meanwhile I feel guilt of having a stable remote job unlike so many others around the country. Someone tell me that I’m not alone
Hi everyone, I have an hr discussion with Siemens on Monday. With current CTC 9.1 LPA, can I ask for 20 lpa fixed component(I'll be joining within 30 days) will there be any joining bonus.
